Hi I'm Drew

I am college student, I seek to make a difference, I am a Mormon

About Me

 I'm a student currently seeking a degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice. My dream is to have a career and law enforcement which has become a passion of mine. I am a husband and soon to be dad. I love football, ice hockey, and lacrosse. My wife is very much the best part of me.

Why I am a Mormon

 I was baptized in an another faith as an infant that I certainly cannot remember. My father however, always had doubts about his church and began to seek out what best suited him. One day, two sister missionaries approached my mother at the grocery store and asked if they could share a bit with my family. Being very open people, my parents accepted the invite. When my father listened to the missionaries it resonated within him. He knew it was true and chose to be baptized. My mother however, had a few doubts. Her parents were very much against it and she needed a bit more time. My father was baptized but my mother chose to wait. She made the decision and was baptized 3 months later. Growing up in the church is not always easy. I always believed that the church was true but I didn't know it. High School was a blast for me but the church wasn't exactly a priority. I had no desires to serve a mission and wasn't exactly prepared too. However, I have learned that Heavenly Father often has different plans from our own and his have a tendency to work out. I served a mission in Utah and truly came to know for myself that The Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-Day Saints is in fact true. I learned first hand that there is a difference between believing and knowing. I came to know it, and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

 My faith is everything. If I go a day with out thinking about the church or Jesus Christ, I know I'm having a bad day. As husband and soon to be father, I cannot afford to lose what is so dear to me. Within the church I oversee missionary work is my Ward. If anyone desires to be taught by the missionaries, I know about it and do all I can to assist. Missionary work is amazing and is something that I truly love. I find that although most people don't want to admit it, they are in fact looking for something more. I promise that in this church, we have that something. We simply need to humble ourselves and admit that we need it.

Are Mormons Christians?

Drew
 This questions seems so frequent today and I am amazed that so many struggle with this principle. Yes, we are Christians!!! Those that disagree, I need to ask what they believe is the definition of a Christian. A Christian is one that follows and seeks after Christ. One that believes that through Jesus Christ, and only Jesus Christ, we can be saved. He is our savior and redeemer, the one that gives us life and the hope of life after. We love and revere him. We read and teach his gospel and principles. We know that he suffered and died for us, but that he lives again. One of my favorite scriptures says, "And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins." Sounds rather Christian right? This scripture comes from 2nd book of Nephi, chapter 25 verse 26, in the Book of Mormon. Mormons are Christians. Show more Show less
